Palace v Leicester City

Selhurst Park, Sunday 2.00pm

Townsend: Looks to be out of this weekend's game

Townsend: Looks to be out of this weekend's game

Team news

Roy Hodgson is looking likely to be without Andros Townsend for the clash against the Foxes after he picked up a muscle strain in the 2-2 draw with Arsenal last week.

Vicente Guaita could be back in between the sticks after training all week and Mamadou Sakho and Connor Wickham took part in the early part of their training session today.

Leicester, with their near to fully fit squad, will look to continue their impressive start to the season - their last game in the Premier League being their 9-0 obliteration of Southampton at St. Mary's.

Roy Hodgson

Hodgson told "I think we may have lost Andros Townsend which is a blow. He felt a muscle strain against Arsenal and hasn’t trained before today [Friday].

"He was desperate to see how it went but didn’t complete the session. We’ll see tomorrow of course but I’ll be surprised [if he is available]."

Brendan Rodgers

“We’ve got a clean bill of health.

"We’ve only got Matty James who has been out for a long period of time. Other than that, we’re fine."
